I’ve only posted once since 2013, but I hope this will be the start of something more regular.  I needed a ty card for our realtor and thought this one would fit the bill.  I have created a thank you using a background using an Embossalicious folder.  The flourish is from Cheery Lynn and the rest of the dies are Lil Inkers. I used shiny green paper which added the needed sparkle.
I am entering the challenge at Happy Little Stampers.  Hope you like this!  It’s great to be back!

Happy Bee-day!

Hello stampers! I'm back after a very long absence. I am so happy to be back in the craft room again.  Today I have a card for the 9th Birthday celebration for Taylored Expressions.

I used a stamp from Taylored Expressions Love Grows There colored with Copics, dies from MFT and LaLa Land, and sentiment from Stampendous.  The double sided DP is from 2008, an unknown (and probably out of business) company.  I used Wink of Stella clear and silver to add bling to the bees, hive and heart.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope to be posting more regularly now that I am well and my craft room is up and running once again! Yea!

I'm on a roll!
Today I have a card for Margaret.
It's a long, overdue thank you card for being a marvelous friend and a wonderful hostess.
It took me awhile to make my way back into my art room.  I have now made several cards, so hopefully, with the physical therapy I am now receiving, I will feel like playing with paper more frequently!
This card uses the Upsy Daisy stamp set from Stampin Up.  I used the same technique as my card a couple of days ago for my sister-in-law, using Tim HOltz distress inks.  If you ever need a card quickly, this is the way to go.  Ink the background, use silhouette stamps (no coloring), stamp a sentiment and mount.  You're done! 
I am entering the following challenges:
Crafty Boots - Flowers
Stamp and Create - anything goes
Hope Margaret gets to her physical mailbox before she gets to her virtual one!
Thanks for stopping by!

It's Good to be Queen!

We have a running joke at the office
regarding one of the ladies with whom we work.  She is considered
"the queen".  We have given her mugs, cards, etc., declaring her the queen, the queen has spoken, etc.  So this year, I made this card for her,
our beloved queen!
I found some lovely flocked paper in my stash and used it for the background as well as for her paper-pieced dress.  I used a Memory Box die for the fence, cutting it out of shiny gold paper.  The queen is mounted on a glittery pale green paper, which is also used for the card base.  Not sure where I got the die for the sentiment, which is stamped in Encore Gold.  I colored her with Copics.  Needless to say, she was a big hit at our office birthday celebration!
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Dies R Us - birthday
New Sweet 7 - birthday
MilkCOffee Challenge - use 2 or more diecuts
Thanks for stopping by!
I'll be back with another card in a day or two.
